Where you go for undergrad doesn't matter because to actually work in this field, you need a minimum of a master's degree. Save your money and pick your cheapest option.

No not true. I’m in the environmental consulting industry and many of my colleagues only have their B.SCs. Stop giving out bad advice.

I stand by my comment. Just how many people do you think are graduating with environmental studies/science degrees today that can nab consulting jobs with an undergraduate degree alone. I know many people that got this degree in the last 5 years and they all struggled in the job market. Granted, I cannot speak for people who obtained their degrees years/decades ago, but recent job market trends indicate that BA and BSc degrees that are not specialized have limited job prospects.

Even if that was not the case, no one cares where you went for a BA/BSc in environmental studies/science.

Shall one do environmental studies at a college first to experience how the field is like before committing to an undergraduate degree?
