The Red Ants Pants Foundation announced more than $19,000 in grants to projects that support women's leadership, working family farms and ranches, and rural communities.

Fueled by ticket sales and donations from the 2016 Red Ants Pants Music Festival , (2017 Festival Lineup Includes The Bellamy Brothers, Lucinda Williams, Asleep At The Wheel and Shooter Jennings & Waymore's Outlaws) the foundation has now given more than $85,000 in grants to date.

"Everyone who enjoys the Red Ants Pants Music Festival is having a lasting impact on rural communities and our working family farms and ranches while helping to move the dial on women's leadership. It's a genuine way for people to come together, enjoy our rural landscapes and leave knowing that they're contributing in a meaningful way," said Sarah Calhoun, executive director of the Red Ants Pants Foundation and Producer of the Red Ants Pants Music Festival.

Red Ants grant aids ‘citizen science’ in Carter County

Thanks to a chance encounter in Baker, the Carter County Museum in Ekalaka will soon be the proud owner of a powerful microscope that will be used in a citizen project to study ancient insects and plants preserved in amber.

Museum Director Sabre Moore ordered the microscope on Wednesday and expects to have it on-site in time for the museum’s flagship event—the Annual Dino Shindig on the last weekend of July. Moore bought the research tool after receiving a $4,300 check from the Red Ants Pants Foundation.
