Krengel, also known as the local "bee guy," has been working with bees for 30 years. In that time, he has moved from keeping two colonies of bees to keeping 40 colonies of bees.

Following his retirement as a high school science teacher, he accepted the position of the editor of the Bulletin of the Illinois State Beekeepers' Association and now acts as a director of the local beekeepers' group.

He teaches classes for beginning beekeepers and speaks to groups about the intrigue of spending time with the bees. He produces honey that is sold locally, maintains hives for local nature centers, and has a passion for raising honeybee queens.

The event is free and open to the public. The college is at 8900 Route 14 in Crystal Lake.
