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

Our two most recent projects are vwhat 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.
