Bookmark this page and return on March 9 for the official 2015 Spring Fecal Fest online entry form.
What is Fecal Fest?
Get your hands on the most desired compost in Seattle. Woodland Park Zoo’s Spring Fecal Fest is right around the corner. The 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.
How do I enter the lottery?
Submissions are accepted online only starting March 9 - March 29, 2015. Return here for the official entry form and entry instructions on March 9, 2015. Fecal Fest is offered twice yearly, with the Spring Fecal Fest usually taking place in March.
What happens if I am selected?
Entries will be randomly selected according to supply and demand. Dr. Doo will contact the lucky drawn entries only. The lucky winners load the compost using shovels provided by the zoo. Pick up dates are April 11 - May 3, 2015.
In addition to our 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.
