We have lost a friend. Ken Bickel passed away in Bozeman on January 28, 2023.


He had a master’s degree in fisheries and a special connection with nature. He took being a land steward seriously, working diligently to manage noxious weeds while conserving native plants. He shared his apple trees with the bears. Admired the deer and elk in the meadow behind his house. He put up bird houses and followed their nesting progress. He watched peregrine falcons nest in the rock formations across the river from his home. He loved the fact that he had a mountain lion frequenting his property.

Ken was a conservationist. He volunteered for Trout Unlimited and Gallatin Invasive Species Alliance. We always looked forward to seeing him at volunteer events.

Thank you, Ken, for being such a good friend to us all. We will miss you and so will nature.
