Located where the Snake and Clearwater Rivers meet, sister city to Clarkston in Washington, Lewiston, Idaho is rich with cultural and natural resources sure to please the outdoor enthusiast and historical adventurer alike.
A city which has now grown to a population of 31,028, when Lewis and Clark first visited these lands made home by the Nez Perce tribe they called it "paradise". In that respect not much has changed since those early days as Lewiston and its surrounding area still holds true to its wondrous beginnings. Warm coastal air pours through river valleys providing an ideal climate for wildlife and residents both. The summers stay mild, usually in the low 90’s and the winter temperatures in the 40’s are rarely harsh, making a great environment for many activities year round.
Founded in 1860, named for Meriwether Lewis of the famed Lewis and Clark expedition, Lewiston is Idaho’s only seaport as well as its oldest city. In 1863 Lewiston was made the state capital of Idaho, a title which it retained for only a few years until the capital was moved to where it resides today in Boise.

Lewiston is also home to the Lewis-Clark State College. Originally established in 1893 under the name Lewis-Clark State Normal School as a teacher training institution the college today provides professional, arts, and science baccalaureate degree programs and excellent vocational and technical programs as well.

A text transcript is a text equivalent of audio information that includes spoken words and non-spoken sounds such as sound effects. NAR is working on adding transcripts to all scripted video and audio content.
A caption is transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally rendered visually by being superimposed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio (e.g., when in a crowded room). Most of NAR's video content includes captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
