Climate Migration California Vermont

Ellie Holden holds burnt wedding silverware, which survived the fire of her family's California home, while looking at a box of "fire treasures", Thursday, May 12, 2022, in Proctor, Vt. After fleeing one of the most destructive fires in California, the Holden family wanted to find a place that had not been so severely affected by climate change and chose Vermont. The few things the Holdens recovered are now boxed in the dairy barn — a burnt trombone, plant hanger, piano brackets, a jewelry box, a ladle, wedding silverware.
