Which environmental career is right for me?

My major is environmental systems/policy. I might double major with ecology. I have an internship with a natural resource conservation organization..and it has really depressed me that 80% of the time..theyre in a small office behind a computer...doing paperwork and making phone calls...or going to board meetings. I always pictured myself "in the field" and..really doing hands on things to help the environment. Since my major is environmental policy..this would be more geared towards government and funding and planning and paperwork..but..i am skeptical of this now.. ...what other jobs are out there..that would be more involved with the outdoors where I would feel like I personally was making a difference..not just by attending meetings and typing letters..?
