Woodland Park Zoo getting gardeners ready for spring with Zoo Doo sale starting Saturday

The Woodland Park Zoo is once again offering its nutrient-filled Zoo Doo to gardeners on Saturday and Sunday.

“Zoo Doo is a great way to garden clean and healthy for the benefit of pollinators and other local wildlife and is a sustainable green choice,” said the zoo in a news release. “The compost is so extraordinary that the zoo’s horticulture experts also use it throughout the zoo in its award-winning animal habitats and other landscaped areas.”

Zoo Doo is a compost made of animal feces from the zoo’s non-primate herbivores like tapirs, pudus, mountain goats, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, zebras, and more.

“The sweet, aromatic Zoo Doo is perfect for growing veggies and annuals,” said the zoo.

Woodland Park Zoo has been giving out Zoo Doo for almost 40 years.
