The survey research design was adopted for this study. Out of a population  of 5,194 secondary school teachers in Cross River State, the stratified and simple random  sampling technique(s) were employed to select a sample of 1030 for the study. The study  was guided by transforming the stated research question into a research hypothesis and  simple linear regression was used to analyze the hypothesis. The result shows that there  was a positive significant influence of teacher’s capacity building on their perception of  interdisciplinary approach to the teaching of Environmental Education in the secondary  school. It was therefore recommended that government and Environmental stake holders  such as the ministries of Education and Environment including NGOs should organize  frequent Environmental Education capacity building for secondary school teachers to  enhance their capacity building and increase their perception of interdisciplinary approach  to the teaching of Environmental Education.
