INDIAN PARADISE tells the story of a local activist/herbalist, Dr. Gere
Reisinger, 73; a career waterways patrolman named Charlie Urban, 91; and the Susquehanna River
Watch – a volunteer group (active in the early and mid 90s) that focused on the clean up and policing of
the Susquehanna River and its riverfronts here in the Wyoming Valley. During that time, the River Watch
put hundreds of hours into cleaning up the riverfront at Kirby Park. Unfortunately, due to decisions
made by local authorities in the mid 90s, they were never able to see their project through – in spite of
over 3 years of grueling work.
