Woodland Park Zoo’s Spring Fecal Fest starts today. The semi-annual event invites local gardeners to enter a bid 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. 

Even though Dr. Doo has been piling poop for six months, there is not enough Zoo Doo to go around. So the zoo uses a lottery system. Potential buyers fill out an entry form online - deadline March 17, 2014.

Entries will be randomly selected according to supply and demand. Dr. Doo will contact the lucky drawn entries only. The lucky winners pick up their poop from April 5 through April 19, 2014. They load the compost using shovels provided by the zoo.

In addition to the 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. 

Prices for Zoo Doo and Bedspread: 
  • Pick-up truck 8x4 bed: $60 - Limit one full truck per person.
  • 6x4 bed: $45 
  • 6x3 bed: $35 
  • Garbage cans: $8 to $10 
  • Bags: $4 to $6 depending on size

Two-gallon and pint-sized buckets are available in the ZooStore for $12.95 and $4.95, respectively.

Fecal Fest is offered twice yearly, with the Fall Fecal Fest usually taking place in September. For more information, call the poop line at 206.625.POOP (7667).
