Woodland Park Zoo’s own Dr. Doo has been hard at work specially crafting a seasonal blend of Holidoo for the holiday. Holidoo consists of compost and bedding featuring rich manures of nearly two dozen zoo herbivore species.

Holidoo is the ideal present for garden enthusiasts or that person who seems to have everything! The festively packaged Holidoo product is available exclusively during the holiday season only at the ZooStore in 4-gallon containers, 2-gallon buckets or pints for stocking stuffers.

Holidoo and Zoo Doo purchases help support the zoo’s animal care, education programs and conservation efforts all over the world. Hurry, supplies are limited.

Shop for Holidoo nightly during WildLights!

WildLights is open 5:30-8:30 nightly through January 1 and will be closed December 24-25. For more zoo gift ideas, visit www.zoo.org/holidaygifts
