SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A panel that promotes hunting, fishing and trapping in Michigan is developing a marketing and media campaign.

The Michigan Wildlife Council is scheduled to discuss the plan during a meeting Tuesday in Saginaw.

Also on the agenda are a financial report and review of a draft semiannual report to the Legislature.

The Michigan Wildlife Council is a nine-member public body created in 2013. Members are appointed by the governor, subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.

The Legislature established the panel to oversee spending from the Michigan Wildlife Management Public Education Fund, which comes from a $1 surcharge on base hunting and fishing licenses.

The fund is meant to help spread the word about the role that outdoor sporting enthusiasts play in wildlife conservation.
