Community Involvement

Serving the Community

Community Service crews provide services to local government agencies such the Olympic Natural Resource Center, the Quillayute Valley School District, Quillayute Valley Park and Recreation District, and non–profit organizations such as the Forks Museum and West End Youth League. The items designed and built by the Woods Products Shop, which are crafted with donated tools and materials, are donated to the Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction, Cherish Our Children, and others.

Sustainable Communities

Olympic Corrections Center supports the Department's goal of working for sustainable, safe communities. The facility consistently looks for ways to save energy, reduce waste, and become more efficient in its plant operations. Sustainability is also demonstrated through the compost program, a horticulture program, recycling program and transitioning to energy saving appliances and installing water meters.

Art in Public Places

The Art in Public Places (AIPP) program facilitates the acquisition, placement, and stewardship of artwork in state-funded building projects throughout Washington. The Washington State Legislature established the AIPP program in 1974 to acquire artwork for educational institutions and state agencies, funded by ½ of 1 percent of the state’s portion of construction costs. Today, the State Art Collection includes more than 4,700 artworks.
