About Your Trip Leader

Meet Gigi Zarzuela

Gigi Zarzuela

I am a fellow bird enthusiast, nature lover, and life-long learner who got hooked on birding here in Colorado back in 2017. A former teacher and instructional coach, I enjoy facilitating learning experiences and making connections with people. One of the things I love most about birding is that it invites us to be mindful. We slow down, look, listen, and approach the moment with open curiosity.

I enjoy leading trips where we visit and revisit the same place across seasons, noticing how the environment and its inhabitants change over time. Acknowledging that no place is ever the same twice - and neither are we. When I am not birding, you can find me baking sourdough bread, playing board games, or hanging out with my indoor-only cats.
