Amy Snover, director of Climate Impacts Group.

For over a quarter of a century, the UW Climate Impacts Group has blended science and decision-making to help the Pacific Northwest region prepare for a changing climate. For the past 10 of those years, director Amy Snover has been at the helm.

Snover recently announced that she will retire on June 15 and plans to travel and spend time outdoors with her husband. Jason Vogel will act as interim director, and four senior staff members — Vogel, Meade Krosby, Guillaume Mauger and Crystal Raymond — will together carry out Snover’s duties until a new director is hired in the fall.

Snover’s impact on the local community isn’t going unnoticed: King County declared June 7, 2022, as “Amy Snover Day” and celebrated at the Washington Park Arboretum. During her last week on campus, UW News sat down with Snover to reflect on what she’s learned in almost 25 years of climate preparedness work.
