If you are looking for a field of study, geology would be one way to go. It is the study of the earth including its history.

Regarding teaching others about the beauty of nature, a science teacher can help inspire young minds. Or, you could be a nature photographer as a hobby.

What aspect of the natural world are you interested in? Do you like science?

You must keep *value* in mind. What I mean by that is think very clearly about what you mean when you say "teach others about how beautiful the natural world is"? What does that actually mean?

One of the best ways to get started in this could be a tour guide. As a tour guide you will be interacting with people that actually
1) want to be taught
2) are already interested and "ready to buy"

Find the closest three national or state parks, call up their visitor center and say you want to speak with whoever is in charge of the visitor center since you are interested in learning more about what they do.

Make it a goal to meet with those people, buy them coffee and sit with them for 20-30 minutes and ask them about the ins and outs of their day. They will likely be happy to share their experience and expertise with you.

If it is appropriate, ask if you can shadow them for a day and see what they do.

Another way to teach others about the natural world is to start a blog about it and share pictures, videos and lessons that you learn along the way. That way, you can teach others 24/7 and your lessons can be shared very easily.

Follow other tour guides or park rangers or people you admire on Twitter or on the Internet. Post thoughtful comments on their blog or share things with them that you think they will value and appreciate. They will appreciate that and be happy to help you out on your way.

The most important thing to do is to actually speak with people that are doing what you *think* you want to do (you might discover life as a ranger or tour guide is very boring and not for you).

Get out there and speak with people doing what you're doing and, most importantly, SHARE what you are doing on the web. That will put you in contact with other people that will help you on your way.

Asking this question was a great start, now get to it!
