You can access the underground tours of the Tunnels of Moose Jaw on Main Street in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. These tunnels were dug nearly one hundred years ago as service tunnels between buildings and the railroad station. Tales are attached to them concerning early Chinese immigrants, boot leg gin, and even the famous Al Capone. Some of the tunnels are block up today, but you can still take one of two interactive underground tours year round.

Hours vary throughout the year so check your timing online prior to booking. Tours take about fifty minutes. There is no photography allowed on the tour. Free parking is available about a block away from the tour's starting location.

The Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre is dedicated to preserving one of Canada's native birds, the endangered burrowing owl. The centre is located in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, the heart of the owl's territory. It was opened in 1997; it stays open from 10 to 6 every day during the summer. During the winter months it is staffed by the director on weekdays from 8 to 5 so you should call ahead if you want a tour. The entire facility is free to the public.

The Interpretive Centre exists to educate the public not only about the lives of burrowing owls, but also to make them aware of the delicate balance that is required by a prairie ecosystem. When you visit you will get the chance to walk through a giant replica of an owl's burrow, see captive owls in a natural enclosure, and perhaps see one of the owls that nest in the region year after year. You can also take a 1 km trek through the prairie to see other wildlife and learn more about natural prairie plants... read more arrow
