Welcome to Headwaters


Caroline Gottschalk Druschke, Ph.D., directs an interdisciplinary group of researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison working at the intersection of public engagement and natural resources management. Through a firm foundation in the study of rhetoric, we build critical theory and conduct social and ecological research and public outreach about stream restoration, migratory fish passage, trout conservation, dam removal, wetlands restoration, watershed-based agricultural outreach, and coastal storm impacts. Our work aims to better understand and intervene in dynamic, multispecies aquatic systems.
