About NeVar and NeVara

NeVar and NeVara are Common Ravens, known for being one of the most intelligent of birds.  Yes, these images are cartoon characters but be sure to take their purpose seriously. They, like all the plants and animals of the Range, inspired the creation of this website. Their participation in telling the Mount Tom Range Story helps promote awareness of the entire range. They urge you and your family and friends to view all this website's pages. Visit the range as often as you can. Get to know its trails, flora and fauna. Spread the word that preserving the Mount Tom Range largely as undeveloped open space is in everyone's economic and ecological best interests.

Little Tom Mountain

Little Tom is part of the ecologically important Mount Tom Range and was acquired in 2002 by the Trustees of Reservations. It and the forests and open fields of the former ski area have become part of the 2,500 acres of conserved open space that protects habitat and provide recreation. Adjacent to Mt. Tom State Reservation, Little Tom offers exploration and learning.
