Lavender ambassadors primarily greet the public, provide information or sell tickets.
They can choose to work at one of seven locations: Purple Haze Lavender, Jardin du Soleil Lavender, Olympic Lavender, Washington Lavender, Lost Mountain Lavender, the fair at Carrie Blake Park or the Sequim Lavender Welcome Center presented by 7 Cedars Casino.
Additional opportunities exist at the fair in the park.
