It seems to me that you have indeed “found your way.” You can’t make a living (and we all must make a living) just by being close to nature.
You must do SOMETHING, and people with changed minds are needed everywhere, not just in “noble” professions. In fact, they’re needed very badly in the very fields in which you are “scientifically inclined.”
For anyone who wants to see good things happen, my advice is the same: Go where you can do your best work (and therefore hopefully the work you’ll find the most fulfilling), because that’s where you’re going to have the greatest impact.
