Abstract. In 1918-1919 Sayan reserve ceased to exist, even before it officially formalized at the governmental level. Sayan reserve was re-established in 1939. But in 1951, the reserve was closed due to lack of security. Existing and planned for opening specially protected areas in the Central part of The Eastern Sayan, as well as the Sayan Geopark and the territory of traditional nature management Tofalar would restore the Sayan reserve in its original borders as a complex of territories with different environmental status. That would be historical justice. Russia’s natural and economic resources are diverse and large. They are unevenly distributed on the territory and differ in insufficient study.

Keywords: geopark, ethnopark, geo-diversity, biodiversity, tourist attractiveness of the territory, endemic landscapes, the territory of traditional nature management, ethnographic park, environmental education, functional zoning, urban planning regulations, natural resource potential, socio-economic assessment of natural resources.
