What is Fecal Fest? 

Get your hands on the most desired compost in Seattle with Woodland Park Zoo’s Spring Fecal Fest. The annual event invites local gardeners to enter the lottery for a chance to purchase the exotic, highly-coveted Zoo Doo and Bedspread that Dr. Doo, also known as the “Prince of Poo,” the “GM of BM” or the “Grand Poopah,” has been piling all season. Fecal Fest is offered twice yearly in the spring and fall.

What happens if I am selected? 

Entries will be randomly selected according to supply and demand. Dr. Doo will contact the lucky drawn entries only. The lucky winners load the compost using shovels provided by the zoo. Pick-up dates are September 20-October 2, 2014.


In addition to our popular Zoo Doo compost, you can enter for a chance to purchase Bedspread, a composted mulch made from the manures and bedding of the zoo’s non-primate herbivores. Bedspread is like Zoo Doo but contains higher amounts of wood chips and sawdust. It is excellent fertile mulch for perennial beds and woody landscapes such as native gardens, rose beds, shrubs, tree rings or pathways, and is an ideal mulch and soil builder for Northwest gardens.

  • Pick-up truck 8x4 bed: $60
  • 6x4 bed: $45
  • 6x3 bed: $35
