Spring ZooDoo sales begin March 6
Make reservations beginning Feb. 16
SPRINGFIELD, MO - Supplies of ZooDoo, Dickerson Park Zoo\'s composted herbivore manure, will be sold beginning Saturday, March 6, while supplies last.
The zoo office will begin taking reservations for ZooDoo pick-up beginning Feb. 16. To make a reservation, call the zoo, 417-833-1570, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Reservations are required.
ZooDoo is loaded at 2 p.m. on Saturdays. The cost is $10 per scoop, and a normal pickup truck load is 3-4 scoops ($30-40). Zookeepers load ZooDoo into open truck beds or on trailers using a front-end loader (limit of four scoops per person). Smaller quantities are available and priced accordingly. Customers wanting bags or buckets of ZooDoo should provide their own containers, shovels and the people-power to load it.
Proceeds from ZooDoo sales benefit Dickerson Park Zoo projects and elephant conservation efforts in Southeast Asia.
