Who is NeVar and NeVara?

Nevar© and his mate NeVara© are a not so common raven pair. Together, they have become the mascots and narrators for this website.

Ravens were chosen for their intelligence, sociability and adaptability. They have been companions to humankind for all of recorded history and are a rich part of our folklore. To some ravens are evil. To others they are revered as noble spirits. And so ravens were chosen to tell the story of Mount Tom and why the ridge that makes up the spine of Holyoke should be preserved largely as undeveloped open space.

Should you have skills in animation, graphic arts, audio and video recording, photography, voice-overs, research, law, and would like to help tell the story of the Mt. Tom Range, please leave a comment under Recent Posts.

Accessibility Trail

Scene 4, Naomi

Volunteers have extended wheelchair access to the new foot bridge at the far end of Lake Bray, working with Department of Conservation and Recreation ( DCR ) officials and reservation staff, Natural Heritage, Holyoke Conservation Commission, Appalachian Mountain Club.  Because of budget constraints, DCR turned to volunteers who applied for grant funding, arranged purchase of construction materials and provided much free labor. The project is an example of coming together to make the Mt. Tom Range accessible to all.
