Woodland Park Zoo’s Spring Fecal Fest begins today

Woodland Park Zoo’s prized compost is up for lottery beginning today through its Spring Fecal Fest. Zoo Doo is only available this year in amounts of 5, 32 and 50 gallons; no truckloads because of a limited supply. However, Bedspread (composted mulch that consists of Zoo Doo, sawdust and wood chips) is still available by the truckload, as well as the smaller amounts.

Pick up where the animals left off. Zoo Doo is composed of species feces contributed by the zoo’s non-primate herbivores such as hippos, giraffes, mountain goats, tapirs and more, and is perfect to grow veggies and annuals.

Dr. Doo’s private reserve of Worm Doo, usually reserved just for the zoo’s greenhouse, will also be sold this spring. Worm Doo is worm castings made from Woodland Park Zoo’s Zoo Doo compost and zoo coffee grounds. It is an exceptional rich soil and microbial diverse soil amendment recommended for seedlings, potted plants or in the garden. It’s been pooped once by exotic herbivores and pooped again by compost loving worms.

Worm Doo will be sold in pint sized containers at the ZooStores for $10 starting March 7. There will be a limited supply so get it while it lasts.

Zoo Doo: 5 gallons $5; 10 gallons $10; 25 gallons $20; 50 gallons $35. Limited to 100 gallons per recipient. No truckloads. Pint-sized buckets are available at the ZooStore for $4.95.

Bedspread: Pick-up truck 8×4 bed: $60; 6×4 bed: $50; 6×3 bed: $40. Winners can get up to two full truckloads per person.

For the chance to purchase Bedspread or Zoo Doo, fill out the online form today through March 29 (only one entry per person for each drawing). Entries will be selected randomly; only entries selected will be contacted. No phone or mail orders. Pickup dates are April 9 – May 1.
