edible scat fundraiser

Nothing says the holidays like chocolate scat! The elves* at Natural Lands are hard at work hand-crafting edible excrement that mimics the poo of native animal species.

Choose from a full-sized scat sampler, or buy single-scat stocking stuffers. All boxes include educational labels on how to identify different kinds of scat.

The Scat Sampler: The sampler includes scat from a variety of animals found in Pennsylvania, including raccoon, red fox, beaver, black bear, Canada Goose, snapping turtle, elk, river otter, and skunk. $20/box

Stocking Stuffers: These single-scat boxes make great small gifts. Available in raccoon, red fox, or elk. $5/box

*In this case, the elves are teenager volunteers who have attended education programs at Crow’s Nest Preserve for many years and are now looking for ways to give something back. All proceeds go toward Crow’s Nest Preserve summer camp scholarships.

SORRY, WE CANNOT SHIP SCAT! (It just doesn’t ship well.)

SCAT FAQs

How did you come up with the idea of edible scat?
It all started when Crow’s Nest Preserve educator Molly Smyrl wanted to trick kids into thinking she had eaten poop she found along the trail. The result was hilarious, and the idea grew from there!

How do I order scat?
Please fill out the order form.

Do I need to pre-order to get scat?
Yes! Our elves only make as many boxes as are ordered, so you must pre-order!

Do you do this fundraiser year-round?
No, the Edible Scat Fundraiser is limited to the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

How do I pay for my order?
Please bring cash or a check (made payable to “Natural Lands”) with you to pick-up. Sorry, we can’t take credit cards at this time.

I can’t make it to either of the designated pick-up dates/locations. May I pick up my scat at some other time?
Please email us and we will try to work something out. In general, we are pretty flexible about pick-up times if you can come to Crow’s Nest Preserve to pick your scat up. If you need to pick-up from another location, it takes a little more planning.

Do you ship scat orders?
Sorry, but no.

What if I paid for you to ship my order?
Sorry, still no! Adding in the logistics of shipping in addition to making and packaging the scat is beyond our capacity at this time. Perhaps someday we’ll be able to offer shipping, but for the foreseeable future the local market for edible scat keeps us plenty busy.

There’s really that much demand for edible scat?
We were surprised at first, too. But everyone seems to know someone to whom they would give a box of poop.
