Protecting Historic Parvin Butte

The Dexter-Lost Valley Community Association is a neighborhood group whose purpose is to protect our community's resources. We are currently working to protect the future of Parvin Butte from adverse impacts of a proposed quarry mining operation.

The welfare of this important historical natural resource is at stake. If the quarry operation proceeds, it means the loss of the butte as the community knows it today. The Lane County Land Management Office has indicated that the owner of the butte property will need to submit an application on their mining proposal for public review and comment, addressing the adverse impacts of their proposed quarry mining operation to the surrounding community, and whether this mining operation would be compatible with the existing uses in the area. The Dexter-Lost Valley Community Association would like your support so that the community can be actively involved in the county land use review process for Parvin Butte.

Where to find us

Please help us protect our community. Become involved with the decisions that affect your qualify of life and the welfare of this community. Join the association today. Meetings are held on the 4th Sunday of each month at 3 PM at the Dexter Fire Department.


We need your help and expertise in this important effort to save this beautiful historic landmark. We are currently seeking volunteers to help by supporting the community's participation in the decision-making process with Lane County and with the association's fundraising efforts to pay for legal services and expert witnesses needed to address the adverse impacts of this proposal during the county's land-use process.
