Founded in 2017, Rowdy Bees connects Dentonites of all ages with environmentally focused education and volunteer opportunities. Rowdy Bees describes their organization as “a creative community service group with a focus on picking up trash, promoting individual entrepreneurship, planning fun events, and creating prosperous environments for bees as well as our own communities.”

In the last 18 months, Rowdy Bees has made a positive impact in Denton. In this short time, the organization has held litter cleanups and fundraisers, partnered with Denton County Brewing Company to build an urban garden with Keep Denton Beautiful Neighborhood Beautification grant funds, and environmental education workshops. Classes covered topics including: reducing plastics in your home and living sustainably, composting, home chemical reduction through natural DIY pest repellants, personal care products, and household cleaners, winterizing your garden, and papermaking containing seeds. Thank you Rowdy Bees for all you do to keep Denton clean and beautiful!
