Green Appleton with woods

Welcome to

Green Appleton


The site has had it's summer spruce-up! There is now an interactive calendar that will show the group's activities - a bit bare now, with everyone doing summer things, but it will show our meetings and events.
We also have our 1500th iNaturalist observation, with a certificate and prize being given to the lucky observer.
The photo station sites have also been reorganised to reflect the changing season,and to organise the growing number of time-lapse videos that are available.
Have a look, and enjoy!


We are Green Appleton, a small environmental group in Appleton, Oxfordshire. We are officially a Community Action Group, and our aims are to:

which can be summed up as 'Think globally, act locally for nature'.


So far we have:


Our two most recent projects are what this website is all about. The first is a time-lapse project, where we are setting up photo stations in Besselsleigh Woods for people to take photos from and to upload them onto this website, so that they can be made into time-lapse videos. We have recently won National Lottery Funding for this.

We are also using iNaturalist to get everyone involved in recording the biodiversity of our area. People can take photos of flora and fauna, and use the app to identify them and place then on the map. It develops individual's knowledge as well as creating an overall picture of our environment.
