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.

The deteriorating former Mount Tom Ski lodge, outbuildings and nearby land, is owned by Holyoke Boys and Girls Club. The club has  yet to restore the facility and it appears there are no plans to do so.  Look to the day when this facility is brought back to life with programs and recreational activities. This view is from what was the main ski slope. Most of the ski area is now owned and maintained for passive recreational use by U.S. Fish and Wildlife. A documentary video, going further into the story of Mount Tom, as well as the ski area, is in the making.  Images courtesy Elbert J. Bowler
