About the Mouse

The Mouse River (known as the Souris River in Canada) has its headwaters located approximately 50 miles southwest of Regina, Saskatchewan, not too far from the city of Weyburn. The Mouse River flows for some 435 miles, crossing into the United States near Sherwood, North Dakota. From here, the river runs through or near the communities of Mouse River Park, Burlington, Minot, Sawyer, Velva, Towner and Westhope. After Westhope, the river continues north until it reaches the Assiniboine River in Canada, a tributary to the Red River.
