Fall Fecal Fest for Zoo Doo

Thursday, September 1, 2011 9:30 AM - 6:00 PM

Fall Fecal Fest for Zoo Doo

Fecal Fest is a twice yearly event where the community gets the ability to purchase larger quantities of our famous Zoo Doo compost product. Fecal Fest is usually announced in September and March.

Fall Fecal Fest Postcards can be submitted September 1-23, 2011; Pick up dates are October 1-17, 2011.

Also available is 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.

Dr. Doo accepts entry cards for Zoo Doo or Bedspread on the announced dates in September and March only. Entry cards will be randomly selected according to supply and demand. Dr. Doo will contact the lucky drawn entries only. The Fecal Fest traditionally sells out.

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. Send a standard postcard to Zoo Doo, Woodland Park Zoo, 601 N. 59th St., Seattle, WA 98103. Include the following information:

  • Name
  • Day/evening phone numbers
  • Preference: Zoo Doo or Bedspread
  • Amount of Zoo Doo or Bedspread you’d like to purchase (anything from a garbage bag to a full-size pick-up truck load)
  • Weekday or weekend preference for pick-up


Fees: Vary; please see webpage
