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.

Warming Hut

Warming Hut, 7-27-11Looking out over Lake Bray is the Warming Hut, a throwback name dating from the original hut when ice skating and fishing was and still are popular. When ice conditions allow a rink is plowed for groups to play hockey or just skate about. In the warm months the area around is ideal for picnics and play. Across nearby Cascade Brook is parking and a popular starting point for hikes. Close by is a Kiosk highlighting facts about animals, birds, and has a trail map box. The hut remains open year round. Bathrooms too.
