Townsend, DE-John Richardson Jr., also known as “J Love The Butterfly Guy,” has been a Septam bus driver for nearly 33 years.

“We used them as a symbol of her metamorphosis and change,” said Richardson Jr. “Butterflies go through several stages of change. I read all about the monarchs and how to help them.”

Richardson Jr. grows and maintains a monarch in the Janetsway habitat of Townsend, Delaware. He began his journey around his birthday in June 2020 as a way to relieve stress.

He wanted to play his part, reading that butterflies could be extinct. He found his new passion and involved the children.

“They all tend to help, and when people look at us, they say’hello’,” he said. “We just like to spread love. They always ask how butterflies do, and I say,” they’re doing pretty well. ” “

Richardson Jr. bought all the supplies himself. From milk weeds and plants to the garden where butterflies lay their eggs.

His butterflies are so strong that he can fly to the mountains of central Mexico and Canada.

He raised about 200 people in 2020 and has raised about 250 people so far this year.

Currently, “J Love the Butterfly Guy” aims to certify his Townsend Reserve as a habitat for pollen maters.
