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.

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.
