Buy animal poop from the Woodland Park Zoo this weekend

Aug 14 2020, 1:55 pm

Perhaps your partner is a gardener and needs manure, or you have an enemy who deserves a doorstep of dung tomorrow morning. Either way, the Woodland Park Zoo has the doo for you.

The Zoo is kicking off their Fall Fecal Fest this Sunday, August 17, which lasts through September 6.

The festival allows zoo lovers to purchase a zoo-made compost blend whose proceeds go directly towards supporting care for the animals of the Woodland Park Zoo, as well as their wildlife conservation projects.

The limited-edition compost blend consists of compost and bedding featuring contributions from the new baby tapir, pudu fawn and mountain goat kid, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, zebras, and more.
