Free Ice Cream Truck To Drive Across USA To Spark Conversations About Conservation
One ice cream truck is on a mission to inspire the next generation of environmentalists and give out free ice cream.
In the United States there is no sound beloved more by children (and some adults) than the sound of an approaching ice cream truck. The jingle indicating that tasty frozen treats are on their way is enough to get people moving out of their houses and onto the streets. And that's exactly what the Ice Cream Expedition is counting on.
Three National Geographic Young Explorers Grant winners, Caleb Kruse, Cameron Kruse and Jordan Fatke, are going to be using their very own ice cream truck to reach out to communities across the nation. They will be hitting up major cities and small towns to give out ice cream and talk to people, especially kids, about preserving their favorite local parks and other wildlife areas.
