Clare 1 Clare spent unknown time in the wild outside Institute volunteer Maggie Scobie's home in Leesburg, VA.

We are always in partnership with that which we serve and are served by, whether people, animals, nature, or task. ~ Susan S. Trout, PhD, Born to Serve

After spending nearly two years taming Clare, Maggie sensed Clare's new home was to be the Institute.  She brought Clare to us on November 12, 2011.  Clare has a beautiful Buddha-nature and quickly won the hearts of all at the Institute.  Among her many roles, Clare is the Institute's Greeter, deliberately coming out to say hello to volunteers and guests when they arrive at the Institute.
