Get a load of this!

It’s time for the Fall Fecal Fest—your chance to get your hands on our highly coveted Zoo Doo.

Why would you want to do that? Garden enthusiasts know that Zoo Doo, made from the manures of the zoo’s non-primate herbivores, is the richest, most exotic compost in the Pacific Northwest. Also available is Bedspread, a composted mulch that is like Zoo Doo but contains higher amounts of wood chips and sawdust.

Zoo Doo is so popular, we have to hold a lottery to decide who gets it. If you want to enter the lottery, send a postcard—postmarked from September 5 through September 20—to: Zoo Doo, Woodland Park Zoo, 601 N. 59th St., Seattle, WA 98103.

Include the following information:

  1. Name
  2. Day/evening phone numbers
  3. Preference: Zoo Doo or Bedspread
  4. Amount of Zoo Doo or Bedspread you’d like to purchase (anything from a garbage bag to a full-size pick-up truck load)
  5. Weekday or weekend preference for pick-up
Pick-up dates begin October 4 through October 19. The lucky winners load the compost, using shovels provided by the zoo.

Only one postcard per person is eligible for the drawing. Phone orders will not be taken.
