Lee Richardson Zoo will offer its special blend of "Zoo Doo" compost for sale by the scoop, bag or bucket from 9 a.m. to noon April 26 south of the zoo on Finnup Drive.

The compost is a mixture of exotic animal manure, food waste and bedding, processed by the zoo's maintenance division into a dry, lightweight, high-quality soil amendment that improves the aeration of the soil, reduces compaction and adds important micronutrients to tired soil to help plants thrive.

The compost will be sold bagged in compostable bags, or by the "Bobcat" scoop loaded into your truck or trailer. You also can bring your own bucket (five gallon or smaller) and get it filled for $1. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to load bags or scoops directly into your vehicle (trunk, truck or trailer). Bags are $5 (for 45 pounds) while a scoop is $25.

Compost also can be purchased during the week by special appointment by calling the zoo at 276-1250.
