Environmental Science major?

I was just wondering what sort of things you'd do with a major in Environmental Science (or Environmental Studies). I'm passionate about protecting the Earth, but I don't know what one would do with a degree. So I have a few questions revolving a major in environmental science. My main passion is writing, but I'm also involved with a few of "environmental" type activities, like a school club and local organization that holds volunteer activities like cleaning up natural lakes, etc.

Is graduate school a necessity?
What jobs are typical to somebody with said major? Do you work in a lab doing research, or outside?

Yes, I have googled and the search really didn't yield anything remotely helpful so I'd definitely appreciate your time.

Sorry if this is kind of vague. I know what you'll learn, and it interests me, I just don't know what sort of job one would hold with this degree.

Thank you!
