The fifth annual Birdhouse Project and Auction takes place May 27 at Wellfleet Preservation Hall, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., a project that started with the idea of recycling some of the old materials from the hall itself as part of a green-building project, said Anne Suggs, WPH founding board member. Building habitat for their nearest neighbors -- the birds -- inspired "a lot of creativity in the community, the birdhouses become little pieces of history from the hall," she said.

The event happens in the garden behind the hall, at 335 Main St., Wellfleet. Birdhouses will be on display at the hall starting May 15, and a preview and silent auction will happen prior to the live auction. Tickets are $15, which includes brunch. For info, visit www.wellfleetpreservationhall.org, or call 508-349-1800.
