Inland Empire SAF member Kirk David and his wife Madeline were invited to participate in a Baltic American Freedom Foundation (BAFF) Dialogue program for two weeks in May. Dr. Lelde Vilkriste from Latvia met Kirk and Madeline while attending one of their “Ties to the Land” family forest owner succession planning presentations during her Baltic-American Research Scholar program visit in 2013. Vilkriste also visited the David’s and Steve and Janet Funk’s (2011 National Outstanding Tree Farmers of the Year) homes and forestland while in Idaho.
