Introducing Zoo Poo compost! Just over a year ago, Horticultural Curator, Lance Swearengin, looked up at the OKC Zoo’s ever-growing mountain of organic plant and animal waste and began formulating a plan. He realized this increasingly hard to manage 15-year-old compost heap wasn’t a burden, but an opportunity in disguise: there was (brown) gold in that hill.
He reached out to Oklahoma City-based landscaping company, Minick Materials, and presented a plan that would utilize their composting expertise and the OKC Zoo’s abundance of organic waste to create a new product: Zoo Poo!

These pair. Well more accurately, this one. She’s so patient with him and so kind to him while he spends most of the time handing her off like a rugby player on defence. He is only 2 after all. But she is not deterred and loves him all the more. She’s really teaching me a lot about love in her new big sister role. As if I could have been more proud of her anyway. As for my little rugby player well, I prayed for strength for him and he’s definitely got it, not least of all in his strength of character. So there we are. And she’s the only one he’ll talk for so they are building a bond. #siblings#mybeautifulchildren#reading#zoopoo#favourite#childrensbooks#bigsister#littlebrother#morningcuddles
