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.

Nature Trail

East of the former Robert Cole Museum, along the New England National Scenic Trail is the 3/4 mile loop called the Nature Trail. It is family friendly and self guided, aided by trail blazes and informational signage about species-rich micro-habitats, old growth trees, mountain top views, interesting geologic features, and a nearby abandoned 18 century quarry. Volunteers are needed help with this trail as well as those throughout the reservation’s 22 miles of hiking trails. Want to help? Contact the park superintendent at 413-534-1186.
