Arlette Milstead

Homestead National Historical Park

Winter 2024

Arlette Milstead (she/her) is passionate about how conservation continues to be defined and learning about the perspectives that come along with it. She has a Bachelor’s degree in sustainability studies from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. Looking back on her undergraduate career, she feels most impacted by her Capstone research on assessing recommendations for environmental defenders throughout South America and Europe as well as her semester abroad in the Galápagos Islands in Ecuador, studying on the People, Politics, and the Environment track. Surrounded by marine life and rich cultural history, she further discerned a path where the traditions of people are celebrated and invigorated as the Earth becomes restored.

She loves being on the go and traveling, whether that looks like being on the water or immersing herself in other cultures. Her kinship to Nebraska and love of the ocean-like prairie sprouted upon arrival at Homestead National Historical Park in Beatrice, Nebraska. She is beyond excited to cultivate and strengthen relationships with neighboring communities.

In her free time, you can find her reading about the ocean or the universe, exploring coffee shops, and exploring some trails.
