New District Boundaries and Territory Map, as of June 1, 2020
We sincerely thank our LHC Scouting families for their patience during the realignment, merger, renumbering, and in some cases renaming of districts.
For many of our Scouters, this was an emotional process since lots of time, energy, and Scouting “sweat-equity” has been invested. Some districts, such as Heart O’ Texas (formerly Indian Nations District) welcomed the opportunity to go back to a name they know. No matter which district you are in, we don’t want the camaraderie or close-knit bonds to stop at all. The Longhorn Council Realignment Committee made up of volunteers, Board members, staff and others had a difficult project on their hands. They looked at the best way for District Executives and volunteers to serve our large council’s territory and the great news is that we will continue to be one big happy family. We thank you in advance for taking the time view our territory map and names.
